For more than ten years, Belabumbum has created loungewear and foundation garments to celebrate a woman's figure from boudoir to baby bump and beyond. The brand's commitment to celebrate and flatter the evolving figure means using luxurious high-quality materials in fashion forward pieces. The brand recently introduced Belabumbum Active - a supportive and versatile collection of workout apparel to inspire pregnant and nursing moms to keep moving. But, having tested it myself, I can tell you the smart and comfortable pieces are truly for all moms.
We were smitten with Belabumbum Active from first look and even included it in our Fun Fitness Finds Mother's Day Shopping Guide. For the past couple weeks I've been working out in the pieces we featured: Room to Flow Cami and Convertible Capri Pant. First things first, yes, I realize the pieces were designed for pregnant and nursing moms. I am not pregnant and I am a retired from breastfeeding. But I am committed to staying active and the Cami and Pants have proven to be the perfect for me - from Barre class to running.
The Room to Flow Cami is a layered tank with a loose spaghetti strap tank over a racerback supportive bra. The layers add visual interest, but are also extremely functional for nursing. It is not easy to find fitness clothes that are breastfeeding-friendly so this is a huge win. The top layer of the tank is very breathable and loose-fitted with a hip band that helps to keep the whole thing in place. The hip band is great for studio classes like yoga and Barre as it helps to keep everything in place. But the beauty is that you don't need a completely wardrobe for cardio or running as the Cami and Capri Pants are built to be active - whatever that means for you.
The Convertible Capri Pants have a permanent spot in my workout wear rotation because they are extraordinarily comfortable. The pants have a wide band that you can wear over your baby bump, folded at mid-waist or rolled down. I don't have a baby bump, more of a very-post-baby-bump, but I find it incredibly comfortable to wear the pants straight and all the way over my waist. The material is so lightweight that even with the pant all the way up past my belly button it doesn't add extra and unwanted warmth.
I'm working hard to build up my running endurance from nothing to a little something. The Belabumbum Active cami and pants give me comfort, coverage and confidence to keep moving.
Shop! Belabumbum Active is available online now at the Belabumbum Online Boutique and at our affiliate Amazon. The collection includes tops, pants and a Hoodie Wrap that I'm totally drooling over. The Room to Flow Cami and the Convertible Capri Pants are $53 each.
